Milwaukee Yamaha's Josh Brookes was left on the back foot at Donington Park after a spill in FP3.

The MCE British Superbike rider was caught out at Redgate after the rain flags came out, but walked away unhurt.

Brookes, though, could only managed a second row start after qualifying in sixth place in final qualifying and admits he has left himself with plenty on his plate on Sunday.

"It hasn't been the best day with the crash this morning in free practice. I was ok, it was just a shame that it gave the boys in the garage more work to do before qualifying," he said.

"Normally the rear tyre starts to slide, but it didn't. It loaded the front and then it let go and I slid off. We qualified on the second row, which means that we have a bit more work to do in the races but we will be pushing as hard as we can.

"Every race we come to we are trying to get on the podium, so although we have made it a bit more difficult for ourselves tomorrow we will be doing everything possible."
